MAKE IT A PARTY WITH PAPER CRAFTS!
Simple everyday events can become fun and festive special occasions when you add a paper-crafted theme, with banners, table decorations, and other cute creations and keepsakes. The photo of Kitchen Wedding Shower paper crafts from our new Party Ensembles book is just one example of what you can make (invitations, an advice album, food picks, bottle wraps, treat bags, napkin rings, and thank-you cards). The Free Project this month gives another example, with an all-occasion flower garden ensemble that would be beautiful for lots of spring and summer parties. With butterfly cutouts and seed-packet party favors, your guests will be enchanted!
